Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie ended their 12-year relationship in 2016, and since then, the latter has barely spoken about it. However, she did so for the first time in like forever during a recent interview with Vogue UK.

During the chat, Jolie opened up on how she has managed to heal after feeling so much pain following the split. The actress did not mention Pitt by name but indirectly referred to their 2016 split while answering a question about being at a happy stage in her life.

Jolie admitted that the last few years have been pretty hard and that she has been focusing on healing her family. She also said things were slowly coming back to normal. She said:

"I don’t know. The past few years have been pretty hard. I’ve been focusing on healing our family. It’s slowly coming back, like the ice melting..."

Despite the improvements, Jolie accepts she is not there yet, though that is her ultimate hope and plan. The actress revealed she likes being older and feels more comfortable in her forties than she did when she was younger.

The 45-year-old reasoned that the reason she was initially uncomfortable about her forties might be due to her mom not living very long. She added that there is something about age that feels like a victory instead of sadness for her.

When asked about residing in Hollywood icon Cecil B. DeMille's estate, Jolie sort of mentioned Pitt. She said her reason for living in the estate is because she wants her children to be close to their dad, who stays just five minutes away.

One of the things Jolie wanted was to remove Judge John W. Ouderkirk from overseeing her and Pitt's divorce.

Despite living close to each other, Jolie and Pitt are still at loggerheads as they are yet to come to terms on a permanent custody agreement for their six children.

The couple's divorce and custody settlement has dragged on for four years, and things hit a new speed bump in October 2020 when Jolie parted ways with another high-priced attorney, Priya Sopori.

"The Eternals" actress also refused to agree to Pitt's request for 50/50 custody of their kids. One source revealed Jolie is refusing to back down on anything concerning her kids and has fought tooth and nail to get what she wants in the divorce.

One of the things Jolie wanted was to remove Judge John W. Ouderkirk from overseeing her and Pitt's divorce. However, she lost her bid to do so when the Superior Court of California in Orange County ruled that Ouderkirk should remain on the case.

The ruling brought up another talking point in the former couple's divorce and custody settlement, which continues to baffle many who wonder how the once inseparable lovers ended up on opposite sides of a bitter legal battle.

Many hope that they can reach an amicable solution soon so that they can focus on their children, careers, and lives without the constant legal distractions.
